KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Thursday's contest was hard-fought, but the Missouri Women's Basketball team falls to 12-5 on the season (1-2 SEC) after its 84-39 loss at No. 9 Tennessee. The Lady Vols topped the Tigers in a physical battle in Knoxville. Morgan Eye led Missouri with 18 points overall and Junior Bri Kulas contributed nine points in the contest as well.

The Tigers had a rough go of it in the first half, as Tennessee outscored the Tigers 48-21. Eye made three of her seven three-point attempts in the first half, and Kulas put up nine points as well. The Tigers grabbed 22 rebounds in the half, using their defensive efforts to slow down the Lady Vols.

Missouri came out energized in the second half, with Morgan Eye hitting a three-pointer early on. Lianna Doty followed that up with a layup after snatching the ball from Tennessee's Ariel Massingale. Eye finished the contest making six of 17 three-point attempts, marking the eighth game this season that she has attempted 10 or more treys in a game.

Freshman Morgan Stock put points on the board for the Tigers this contest, and her sister Maddie Stock made one of Missouri's nine three-pointers in the game.

Mizzou will return to Columbia for a home contest against Kentucky on Sunday, Jan. 13. The game will air on ESPNU, tipping off at 12:30 p.m. The game will also be a part of the `We Back Pat' initiative, honoring Tennessee Head Coach Emeritus, Pat Summitt.
